This is not of the lunar eclipse we had this weekend; the weather was not in our favor (we were able to view a lunar eclipse in Maine however). This moon is far more usual. Click on the image for a larger view.
I have been thinking about warm summer nights in Maine. The rustle of the wind through the canopy makes the sky feel all that closer. It is not the awesome spectacle, but the warm breeze that carries a secret.
Heading into the weekend, a winter advisory was issued. This was our first major winter storm since moving to Kansas City. In comparison to Maine, the 4 to 6 inches of snow does not seem very intimidating. But like Maine, the peaceful nature of these storms, the dampened sound and gentle snowfall, makes this a pleasant way to spend a weekend. Click on the image for a larger view.
